RAJTREE PROGRAM - Zamboanga Sibugay is a rich agricultural province but resources are poorly managed, thus failing to achieve high revenue and income for the farmers and the local government; It lacks implementing rules and regulations to effectively derive income from the natural resources and agricultural products, especially the rubber industry; No concrete program has ever been established for the rubber industry to synchronize its direction towards a strong agro-industry in the province; For the past few years, the national and local government never gave focus to rubber as a viable industry for Zamboanga Sibugay
2012 SOPA - Our being here is like a grand reunion. Meeting someone, we usually say: “Kumusta ka?” Hence, it is also proper that we start our gathering with the question: “Kumusta na ang Sibugay?” Let us backtrack a bit in our memory lane. Are we in a dreamland or a nightmare? It is said that “a plan without action is but a daydream while an action without a plan is a nightmare.” When we took over in 2010 Sibugay was tagged as one of the worst governed provinces in the country. For a start, it was a nightmare. But that also prompted us to dream for transformation...
THE GOVERNOR - I wish to invite you to explore Zamboanga Sibugay through this official provincial website. Information Technology (IT) brought unprecedented changes to communication and information in ways never before imagined. Practically, any information is now just a google click away. Remote communication is just a text, a call or a video chat away. Infotech made communication and information easily accessible both to the rich and the poor. This is an ingredient for democratic information and participation...
IPIL stands to benefit from the P93.8-million port project of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) to improve several ports in the country in anticipation of increased commercial shipping activities.
In a statement posted on its website, Transportation and Communications Secretary Mar Roxas said the Aquino administration will rehabilitate and expand the sea ports in Corcuera, Romblon; Sto. Domingo, Bacacay, and Pili—all in Albay; Palid, Zamboanga Sibugay; Melga, Dinagat Island; and Placer, Surigao Del Norte.
“These projects are a key component to the commitment of the government to provide convenient, affordable, reliable, efficient, and safe transport. These will also respond to the steady expansion of shipping activities—shipcalls, cargo throughputs, and passenger and container traffic—which made it a necessity to expand and upgrade the country’s port community,” Roxas said.
The Palid Wharf in Zamboanga Sibugay will be improved to the tune of P4.9 million so that it can provide a connection to Buluan Island—a flora and fauna sanctuary that offers breathtaking underwater sceneries populated by untouched corals as well as 21oobserved families of fishes, giant clams, and marine turtles.
The Corcuera Port project in Romblon, however, is the biggest among the DOTC’s port development projects, worth P28.7 million.
It aims to improve the regular and special boat trips from Corcuera to Calatrava in Tablas Island as well as to the provincial capital of Romblon; Banton Island, and San Agustin.
Next is the P28.4-million port project in Placer, Surigao Del Norte. The port serves all sea crafts within the municipality and from the neighboring islands and towns.
The Bacacay Port project in Albay is also scheduled to be improved to handle the expanding number of shipment of coal products coming from island barangays. The project cost is estimated at P9.6 million.
The Pili Port job in Albay will amount to P8.7 million so that the docks can be expanded to accommodate not only motorized bancas plying Pili Bay but also handle the expected increase in the fish and other aquaculture production in the area.
In Sto. Domingo, Albay, its port lies strategically between Legazpi City and Tabaco City. It caters not only to boats of fisher folks, but also pump boats carrying tourists on island-hopping tours in several islets off the shores of Albay. The project will entail a cost of P8.6 million.
Meanwhile, the P4.9-million Melgar Wharf project in Dinagat Island aims to make the port as one of the main entry points from Surigao del Norte to Dinagat Island. The wharf will also serve the fishing activities in the area and transport of passenger and goods from/to San Jose, Surigao Port and other nearby barangays. benefit from DOTC.
